Charts and Schematics: How to Use Eazydraw on Your Mac
You don’t need a special knitting software package to easily make beautiful cable, lace, and colorwork charts or draw professional-looking schematics on your computer. One simple, inexpensive drawing app for your Mac will do it all. Norah will guide you through the process she uses to make charts and schematics with the easy-to-understand and intuitive program/app, Eazydraw. Note: This app is for Mac computers only and you need to provide your own Mac laptop for the class.
Choose Your Own Arrangement—Cabled Hat
Design a cabled hat without the hard work. Choose from a variety of different cable charts designed for the class and learn how to complete your hat by following prewritten design templates for a beanie, slouchy hat, or beret. All three styles can be knit seamlessly in the round or flat, then seamed. Experience reading charts is helpful, but if you’ve never done it before, you can learn it here. The variety of charts will include a range of difficulty so intermediate or advanced knitters can forge ahead and take on a more challenging chart while beginners can keep it simple.
